I usually use a moist rag while it's still warm, not hot. And then sometimes I will use an old sanding or grit cloth to make it nice and shiny. Only takes a moment and gets rid of any burns marks. It's the same thing they do with factory prefabbed stuff. Lets you see all the imperfections in the joint like misfilled spots. Also looks really good to the homeowner, they don't value a naturally nice looking joint like we do, most like it real shiny.

Copper cleaned way to far. Cleaning should end at 1/8" past the fitting, not inches past the fitting on the tubing.....<img src="https://www.plumbingzone.com/images/smilies/biggrin.png" border="0" alt="" title="Biggrin" class="inlineimg" />

Nice job.



He probably cleaned up the fittings after he was done to remove any excess flux. What's your test say about that? <img src="https://www.plumbingzone.com/images/smilies/biggrin.png" border="0" alt="" title="Biggrin" class="inlineimg" />
